Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge are back to announce Yes Lawd! Remixes, a new reworking of their debut as NxWorries. The album will be released November 17.
It only made sense for Knxwledge, being the prolific remixer that he is, to remix his own album, adding a new interpretation to the tracks featuring Anderson .Paak's vocals. The first transmissions of this were previously shared in the epilogue of the "Scared Money" video which contained Knxwledge's remix of "Best One."
Vinyl will be released on "Black Friday" November 24. Stones Throw has an exclusive edition of the vinyl: clear vinyl, with black board sleeve, and inner sleeve. You can buy it here.
